Alcoyano vs. Real Madrid and Alavés vs. Barça in round of 32

Alcoyano and Alavés have drawn the short straw; they'll face Madrid and Barcelona. Jaén versus Atlético Madrid is another fourth-round pairing which looks interesting.


The draw for the fourth round of the Copa del Rey, the first featuring the 20 Primera División teams, was made after midday today at the Ciudad Deportiva complex in Las Rozas, Madrid. The road to the final was also established. The next round, of 32 teams, will be played over two legs on the 31st October and the 28th November.

Alcoyano of Alicante will face Madrid while Barcelona's opponents are Alavés. In the round of sixteen, Mourinho's men would play the winner of the knock-out between Almeria and Celta. If Barcelona get through their match, they'll be up against Córdoba or Real Sociedad.

Barça and Madrid wouldn't face each other until the semi-finals, and if that happens the first leg would be at the Santiago Bernabéu.
